Some brides get the idea that they can save some money if they skip on shilling out for an open bar. But to get through one of the most stressful (and magical) days of your life, you’re going to need some lubrication. So even if the open bar is for you alone, it’ll be worth it!
We’ve compiled a list of wedding day situations that will seem like no big deal after you’ve had access to all of the libations an open bar has to offer.
Your bridesmaids are your best friends… and they have to hold your dress whenever you pee! But your mom made you include your weird second cousin Janet who doesn’t smile and cut the sleeves off of her dress. And your college roommate disappeared with the best man a half hour ago.

You really hate making awkward small talk with strangers. If all of your single friends just showed up at the wedding solo, they’d have a better chance of scoring. Then you wouldn’t have to pretend to be interested in their BFF’s thoughts on the DJ in between sips of your mojito that’s pretty much just rum at this point.

Forget about how much an evening’s open bar will cost. Don’t think about how you were hoping to have a down payment on a house at the end of year. Because the relief you get from killing brain cells while your family is driving you crazy—that’s priceless.
